這個聲音很好、用起來快速又方便的 Garritan Personal Orchestra 升級到第五版！可能因為競爭激烈，本來主打音色庫較小但好用的 Garritan Personal Orchestra 居然容量變成五倍.....儘管還是比許多管弦樂取樣音色庫小很多 (這其實是好事)。 官方網站有許多 audio demos 與介紹: http://www.garritan.com/products/personal-orchestra-5/ Personal Orchestra is the virtual instrument library that democratized the creation of orchestral music by making access to great sounds affordable. GPO 5 is five times larger than GPO 4 and offers more than 500 instruments. Some of the additions include: New Orchestral Strings including 94 section string patches, 33 small sections, and 28 solo strings in a wide range of bow strokes and techniques. Seven additional choir groups with 23 patches, including boys’ and children’s choirs as well as sopranos, altos, tenors and basses. Updated brass instruments from the renowned ProjectSAM’s “Orchestral Brass Classic.” Two new concert grand pianos: a legendary 9’ Model D and a 7’ Model B. Completely new harp instruments with harp pedaling emulation, a custom organ console for expanded pipe organ control, more than 16 new impulse response presets, and much more. New instruments are just part of the GPO 5 package, with many advances also made in new techniques, performance spaces and reverbs, and instrument body resonances. The result empowers musicians to produce truly inspiring symphonic sounds with a much higher level of realism. Also included will be an updated ARIA Player, with additional controls, and a tree view making it easier than ever to load virtual instrument sounds. GPO 5 will have a list price of $149.95, and registered owners of GPO 4 will be able to upgrade for just $49.95.
